Subject: As I Have Said Before
Arthur Wontner gives us Sherlock Holmes as Doyle wrote him. If you people could read you would know that Holmes doesn't have "pizz-azz" and, in fact, isn't actually very likeable.
Film and radio interpretations have clearly confused a good many people but if you want to see the Sherlock Holmes of Conan Doyle's stories----these are the films you watch.

Not bad for late night viewing. The Holmes part is a little hard to believe; his explanations just did not make much sense. The film is fun especially the warehouse fight scene.
Subject: bit of cinema history
Arthur Wontner was known as the 'critics choice' of Sherlock Holmes, and may still be favourite at the Sherlock Holmes society, due to his remarkable resemblance to the original Sidney Padget drawings. Other character actors, looking remarkably young, also appear. Would love to see decent prints of these films, the negatives, if they still survive are probably rotting somewhere.
Subject: poor sound quality
The constant static is more than a little annoying. If anyone can clean it up or has a better copy, it would be great to replace this one.
Subject: Worth a watch.
Actually, I thought the guy playing Holmes was pretty good, the acting in general was good, I liked the guy playing Jonathan Small (peg leg guy) and the story was close to the book. I agree that the fight scene at the end (slapstick funny in a way) was worth the wait.
Pretty well-acted movie. I agree with the reviewer below; the guy playing Sherlock is very good, but not quite good enough. If you like mysteries, don't miss this one. Oh, and the fight scene at the end is hilarious!!! I added another star just for that.

Good story and production, worth a down load.
But i like Basil and Nigel better.
Subject: Not Basil Rathbone, but not bad
This film follows A. Conan Doyle's story fairly closely and is fairly well acted. It's only real problem is the guy playing Sherlock Holmes doesn't have enough pizazz to realy pull it off. Still, it's quite entertaining, though not as riveting as the more modern ones, but still a good way to kick back with some movie snacks and your favorite beverage for an hour or so.
